24 Hours In Leicester – Part 3
Our final destination on this visit to Leicester was to the Dārul Iftaa, established by Mufti Muḥammad ibn Ādam, under the auspices of the Leicester Jāme Masjid. We were very warmly received by Mufti Muḥammad Ibn Ādam, who gave us a very brief snapshot of the services provided by the Jāme Masjid.
There are 2 full-time Islāmic Schools running, one for the boys and one for the girls. Then, there are 2 full-time non-residential Madrasahs running, again one for the boys and one for the girls. To complement this, they have Maktab facilities in the evening for boys and girls.
It is a spectacular setting, all under one Jāme Masjid, .مَا شَآءَ الله Mufti Muḥammad and his 2 other colleagues answer questions every weekday. What a wonderful set up, .مَا شَآءَ الله We prayed Ẓuhr at the Jāme Masjid, which must be one of the largest Masjids in the UK.
After Ṣalāh, we had the opportunity to meet Ḥaḍrat Mawlānā Ādam Ṣāḥib, who despite being very weak, still came for Ẓuhr Jamā’ah, .مَا شَآءَ الله We met him after the Ṣalāh. That was the end of this remarkable 24 hours in Leicester.
May The Almighty grant us all the ability to live side by side in harmony and peace, Āmeen.
